Who Is The Easter Bunny?

Updated on October 19, 2014

The Easter Bunny is loved by billions of children around the world. He's also known in some places as Peter Cottontail. In some legends he wears clothing and in others he doesn't. One things for certain in most areas he's responsible for bringing colored eggs and candy in a basket to kids on Easter morning. Ask any child! They'll tell you who the Easter Bunny is!

The Easter Bunny is the symbol of Spring, fertility and new beginnings for many around the world. I created this lens about the Easter Bunny to be a light and fluffy fun tribute. I hope you enjoy it and I hope it helps others learn who the Easter Bunny is.

The Easter Bunny Is Comin' to Town

In Kidsville, the kids make the rules! They run their own shops stay up late. In the Spring, everyone - including Sunny the Bunny - joins together to help make Easter treats. Then the Bunny takes the painted eggs and delicious jellybeans to a nearby town. The only problem is the town doesn't allow kids or a hippity-hoppity Easter bunny!

Here Comes Peter Cottontail is a classic Easter fairytale for kids by Rankin & Bass production. It's very similar to another one of their classics, the beloved Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. It takes kids on a tour and shares the story of how Peter Cottontail almost failed in his quest to become THE Easter Bunny.

      I'm pretty sure I saw the Easter Bunny hiding in my yard today--my 4 year old Grandson saw him too!

      He told me the Easter Bunny wasn't going to bring him too much candy this year because there had to be room left in his Easter basket for the Ninja Turtles he was getting instead.
